You may have tried many things to improve your pronunciation. It has improved some but still you feel it is not good enough for your needs. You still believe, or at least hope, you can improve, and maybe a lot, but you don't want to keep trying with little reward.
You may even know you can improve but you just want to see the improvements happen faster.
Are you to blame?
The fact that you may feel yourself unable to progress in the way you want is something you may be tempted to blame yourself for. Well, don't beat yourself up about it. The fault is not yours. The reality is that you have everything you need to keep improving. You have proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt by learning your first language. The fact it happened when you were young does not mean you have lost the capacity. There are a number reasons why that ability appears to be hiding. One critical one is that you have been led astray by, undoubtedly, well meaning teachers and others.
Why you have been struggling?
The reason a lot of people, yes a lot, struggle with improving pronunciation is that they follow the examples and advice of others. These people are in the main just telling you what they think works. The sad fact though is that very few people really know what works.
Most of the ways people use is based on ways of learning/teaching that are more suited to facts, not to skills. Hence, pronunciation is usually seen as something we need to copy and repeat. By doing this however most people seldom get to the levels they wish to. This is especially true for people who have a first language that has sounds quite different to English. Learning for many of them is typically slow if they all they use is the copy and memorise system. What they don't get the first time, becomes something they keep struggling with. This does not need to happen.
Give a person a fork to eat soup with and before too long they will doubt their ability to eat soup.
Maybe an example stretched a bit far, but I am sure you get my drift. :-)
There are 2 key problems with the copy & repeat method:

What Andrew's students are saying
Bich Ngoc Nguyen
Andrew .... has his own recipe to approach every single student. He knows your common mistakes from the first conversation and carefully works on those areas. If you expect he is going to correct every wrong word you say, you're wrong. He gives you the guidance and key for you to open your own door and never do other similar mistakes. He never tells you how do you pronounce wrong, he let you explore yourself by giving a series of similar words that you pronounce right. You then make a comparison and create your own experiences. This helps you remember...., because it is your knowledge, not his.
With me, the pronunciation is most terrible thing during learning English however thanks_ to his patience and guidance, I have realised that speaking English is not as (much) difficult as we thought and I really enjoyed learning with him! "
Before going to Andrew classes I was not aware that to learn English my approach is not completely right. But after attending his classes (ESL), I learned new and really effective ways to learn English, which I implemented in my daily life. Andrew helped me in building the confidence that me and anybody can learn English with right approaches
